Stupidest thing ever said, non-Megan division

There's a true gem in the comments to her monstrously stupid post arguing recessions hurt the wealthy more than the poor. Megan did not say this, but someone who actually agrees with her claims did.

"They just want people to pay in proportion to the benefit they derive from society."

By that logic, the poor should pay the most, while the rich the least

Yeah, that homeless guy gets a lot more from society than, say, the sports team owner who was given a half billion dollar new stadium for free on the taxpayer's dime. I like this man's arguments and would be interested in subscribing to his newsletter.


It appears possible ken might have meant that sarcastically.
